HIIM Program Grant

The Health Informatics and Information Management (HIIM) Program Grants are awarded to Health Information Administration, Health Informatics, and Health Information Technology programs to support improvements in teaching and learning and to help meet special needs of these programs in California. The amount of the grant is determined annually by the CHIA Board. The grants are funded through member and vendor partner donations to the CHIA Scholarship program.

Eligibility

The recipients of the HIIM grants will be California-based Health Information Administration, Health Informatics, or Health Information Technology Programs that are accredited through the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM*).

Application process

The application process is easy. Program Directors should send the CHIA Executive Director a narrative application for the grant, utilizing no more than 750 words. Included in the application should be a clear, concise description of the HIA/HIT program, the number of students in the program, a description of any special needs that the program has and/or how the grant will be utilized to improve the teaching and/or student learning in the program.

The recipients of the Program Grants will be selected by the CHIA Awards Committee annually. The recipients of the Program grants are announced at the CHIA Convention & Exhibit.
